    Lightbulb How did Nelson get started with hormone research?

    “There’s wisdom with age, but there’s a lot more wisdom with age and HIV,” says Nelson Vergel. Like many long-term survivors, he initially considered his HIV diagnosis a death sentence. But despite the odds, the Venezuelan immigrant refused to give up.
    Vergel tested positive for the virus in 1987, three years after moving to the United States. “I arrived
    to this country and had a lot of dreams and plans,” says the Houston resident.
    His diagnosis compelled him to become a certified HIV counselor. A chemical engineer during the day, Vergel volunteered at Houston’s main HIV clinic at night.
    The virus ultimately caused him to experience HIV-associated wasting. But he bulked up with the help of anabolic steroids. “I not only felt better but also started to look like I didn’t have HIV,” Vergel says.
    Heartened by his results, he decided to raise awareness among doctors about the positive effects of these drugs on people living with HIV. He did extensive research on the synthetic hormones and created detailed fact sheets that he sent to physicians.
